A Recent Review of this tour

Valentina gave us a truly wonderful tour of the Coliseum—it is one of the highlights of our trip. Her depth of knowledge and equanimity in the face of many questions was formidable. We learned so much about the historical context of the Coliseum; she brought it to life for us.
